2018 Barrel Aged Rackhouse Ale Release

Consistently regarded by fans as one of their favorite barrel aged brews at GLBC, the heralded and flavorful Barrel Aged Rackhouse Ale has returned. Inspired by America’s proud distilling tradition, we aged our sweet bold Rackhouse Ale in bourbon barrels for 10 months to create this venerable, one-of-a-kind sipper. Savor it now or save it for later—this smooth, complex brew gets even better with age.
